I created a logo and related graphics for Wölfsnäke, a heavy metal covers band. The design is inspired by medieval blackletter, illumination and gothic sculpture, complemented with freeform brushstrokes.
Wölfsnäke play music from a range of metal subgenres. I explored options by plotting well known bands on a spectrum, and creating ideas that would fit on different points on the spectrum. After the band chose the medieval style, I expanded the look by creating a gothic-style sculpture of the ‘beasts’ using Cinema 4D, and creating layouts that used violent brushstrokes.
